for it for the time being? mitt romney is happy, tim pawlenty, jon huntsman, chasing romney, and frankly chasing michele bachmann, not so happy about it. >>> john boehner isn't the only leader feeling heat from members of his own party. president obama is now hearing from a lot of democrats including senate democrats who aren't sure they like where the debt talks are heading. >>> joining me now senator claire mccaskill, she's a democrat from missouri and somewhat who likes to speak her mind. senator, nice to see you this morning. >> thanks, chuck. >> all right, the outlines of this deal that we're hearing about that would have cuts up front and the revenue conversation on taxes taking place over the next 18 months with penalties, if nothing gets implemented, is a broad outline. i know you want to see details. what do you think? >> well, you know, first of all, i've been working on cuts for a long time, and jeff sessions and i came close to passing a cap on spending even before last november's elections. so, i think that cuts are very important. having said that. i think it's going to be very imp
: one of the big stories we will be following the next two hours, jon scott, standing by with a preview of "happening now". julie juliet: >> by the time we join you 12 minutes from now, 12 minutes will have ticked away, heading towards the debt limit and a tea party tempest as tea party backed republican freshmen get the run of the house. senator lindsey graham says this nation is becoming greece. he's our guest. and bret baier on winners and losers on this, and, baby it is hot outside! 17 states with extreme heat and the republican race for president could get hotter. governor rick perry may be getting closer to jumping into the race for the white house and is making those kind of noises, at least. we'll take a closer look at his prospects, coming up, happening now. jamie: thanks, jon. lots to cover? thanks, jamie. jamie: they grew up together and now, they plan to serve together, a set of quadruplets set to serve their country. what do their parents have to say about all of this. >> i don't know how we'll react. >> i'm so close to all four, so it is harder. it is harder for me to see
but not taking part in the ames straw poll. jon huntsman is the same way. viewing iowa not necessary to his path. is that a dangerous move? >> i think is it very dangerous. if you look to the last cycle and think what happened with rudy giuliani and the guys that decided we can bypass the social conservative, a fool's game. you don't gain momentum. south carolina is sitting right there and south carolina is going to bring back the social conservative issues. by the way, rick perry is a guy who is strong on abortion. a guy who has a strong position in gay marriage and he appeals to the social conservative. if he is there with the money he's a major player. >> bret: agree? >> yeah, the potential is he invites somebody else to the dance not making a big play in iowa. if he made a big play and won it, won caucus, it could be over before it started. it makes strategic sense on one level that he dumps resources in there and had nothing to show for it except for embarrassment to overcome the rest of it there is a risk there from a front-runner to skip an early state. >> bret: we haven't talked about sa
trouble, jon, having that urge to ridicule again? >> yeah, presidential candidate's husbands trying to cure gay people while -- >> uh-huh. okay. >> wow. okay. ah -- i'm coming in. >> oh, really? >> you need to get it out. what's your body wanting you to say? >> i don't know. something like -- he's so gay, he calls "top gun "that he volleyball movie. oh, my god! wow. >> no. no. >> aren't you -- aren't you -- ever tempted by this stuff? >> of course, i'd love to say, dr. marcus bachmann buys brawny towels for the packaging. i have that in me. >> i know. >> so gay, richard simmons tells him to tone it down. >> any [ bleep ] -- >> oh, no! no. >> interesting area they're working here. anyway, speak of bachmann, she may need brush up on her yiddish. specifically, pronunciation of chutzpah. >> the president doesn't want to the confronted with spending. he has a lot of chutzpah. he spent trillions on the stimulus. it failed. >> that's right up with her history. >>> finally, good-bye and good luck to the producer of "hardball" all these years. she's done great work day in and day out. sorry
republican senator jon kyl. >> the country will not default whether or not there are savings in the process remains the question. at the end of the day, there will not be a default. >> dan balz is the national political reporter and the chief for "the washington post," and author of "the take." and beth reinhart is a political correspondent for the "national journal." welcome all of you. let's start with this week, dan. you've been around washington longer than everybody. i'm not just saying that because off grayer beard than i do, but this week of show votes is, we know that nothing is going to come about and any of these votes are going to pass, but why are they necessary? >> because, a, they don't have anything real to do. they feel they have to do something for a lot of the freshman republicans. they want to take these votes to show the people back home that they're doing exactly what they said they would do. but it's a, you know, it's a a charade and i think everybody recognizes that. we talked about, there's not going to be a default. in a sense, there has been a default. there's be
, after the media hype, it didn't work. it's passed away. >> we go from jon huntsman to tim pawlenty, a very nice guy, successful minnesota governor. yet the iowa poll that came out suggests tim pawlenty is in big trouble. >> he can't great through. he's on the sunday shows, making speeches at cfr, but he hovers around the 9% margin. if he doesn't make a move quickly, he better watch it. >> a cautionary note on pawlenty. he's been in iowa working for i don't know how long. he's got to be organized for the iowa straw polls in august. i think he's got to outperform whatever present number he has. michele bachmann has been in there three weeks. you have to organize the state and the community. he's probably been in all 99 counties. he might have a surprise showing in the iowa aim straw poll. unless he does, he's in, what was it, deep doo-doo. >> one way to look at it. >> do we arrive at a point where republican candidates -- >> that's the big question. to what degree is this base going to go with anybody but barack? i think romney will prove that out. the race is so unsettled at this po
% and jon huntsman with the excitement of his launch, 2%. romney, sticking his economic message and letting the craziness go on around him. >> they have run a very good opening portion of their campaign except one part of it. i'm surprised at the money. it's under $20 million. while it lasts, it's fine in compareson. four years ago, he was less known. you wonder where is the establishment. there's still a pot of money sitting on the sidelines that has gone to no one. maybe they are waiting for an alternative or say romney is figuring this out, he's on message, fine. all of a sudden, the second quarter number for romney is greater than the first. that could put away the race earlier than expected. that's the one part that surprises me. romney failed to ignite the money crowd around him and he's been flawless on message. >> the twitter town hall, we must clarify, the questions are twittered in. tweeted in. >> and the president doesn't type. >> it's not 140 characters. >> no hash tags. >> all right. what is the point behind it? a new way of reaching out and social networking. it hey, look at t
